This week’s people group focus at RVA is the Mbororo people of Central Africa. Please read below to learn more. Pray for a team to form that will reach out to this group.
Although one of the first African tribes to convert to Islam, they preserve many of their Mbororo customs. They follow the Muslim rituals of prayer, fasting and pilgrimages, but because of their fear of the spirit world, they wear fetishes and charms, and practice rituals for protection. Despite this, they have demonstrated an openness to the Gospel, particularly when they see it worked out in deeds of love and mercy.
“Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
